Summary

Review

While visiting a small town, Gabrielle and Xena become seperated and Gabrielle is kidnapped. While trying to find her, Xena is challenged to a fight with a young warrior who really fancies himself as a fighter. Despite being incapacitated by an accident with an oil bottle during the fight, Xena manages to hold her own. Meanwhile Gabrielle discovers that she is to be married to a king and despite her protests is coached in how to present herself at court. The warrior is infuriated that Xena  has been blinded by the oil that hit her eyes and refuses to continue to fight her with her at such a disadvantage. She agrees to a rematch but only on the condition that he assist her in rescuing Gabrielle first. When his erstwhile friends with whom he arranged Gabrielle's kidnapping turn on him and try to kill him, Xena and he end up fighting on the same side. At the end of the fight, he suddenly realises that Xena is now blind, but not before she's manacled the two of them together to stop him escaping. Later while trying to escape a search by the soldiers of the king who has kidnapped Gabrielle, Xena falls into a ravine and is about to drag the young warrior with her. When she releases the manacle to allow him to survive, he decides to try and save her. Gabrielle meanwhile escapes the guards and visits the King's chambers only to discover that he's dead and that she is to be married to him and then killed so that the King's minister can gain power over the kingdom.
